The guest, Bing West, Assistant Secretary of Defense in the Reagan years, explains if the minute Obama found out the directive was given to "securing our personnel" it should have been followed out immediately, and a copy of that order would also have been sent to many throughout the Chain of Command.

Mr West also says it was the State Department that sent in the 6 Americans to try to help, and that may explain Bill Clinton's anxiety for Hillary to release more documents.

Initial phone call to Washington(which would have been approx 9:40pm at the consulate);

http://www.state.gov/r/pa/prs/ps/2012/10/198791.htm

SENIOR STATE DEPARTMENT OFFICIAL:“...I neglected to mention from the top that that agent from the top of this incident, or the very beginning of this incident, has been on the phone. He had called the quick reaction security team, he had called the Libyan authorities, he had called the Embassy in Tripoli, and he had called Washington.”

Here’s the 3rd debate where Obama says when the initial phone call came, he gave an order to "secure those Americans";

TRANSCRIPT: Presidential debate on foreign policy at Lynn University
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/10/22/transcript-presidential-debate-on-foreign-policy-at-lynn-university/

Obama “Now with respect to Libya, as I indicated in the last debate, when we received that phone call, I immediately made sure that, number one, that we did everything we could to secure those Americans who were still in harm’s way;”

The lack of a directive.

The CIA guy painting a target from the roof, which usually means a gun-ship or armed Predator is overhead.

The deny-rescue status on three occasions...who denied?

It’s all odd questions that could be answered in thirty minutes....but we are on six weeks now. I think the more it stays out there....the less confident we are with the administration.

Excellent!
He sums up the situation in one sentence:

“All the President has to do is show the execute order”.

Benghazigate has gotten little msm attention.
The hurricane shows Obama in a presidential light.
Had Sandy not happened, Benghazi may have impacted the election. I don’t think it will have much impact now.

Next March or April we’ll finally be getting to the bottom of what happened in Benghazi.

Oh, I think Benghazi will matter, because the word IS getting out.

Fox is watched by liberals. They too, understand that the vaunted leftist media hides things. Fox’s ratings exceed those of all the leftist media combined, for a reason. My brother is a staunch lib, he found out about it somehow, and I know he watches Fox and listens to Rush so that he will have a heads up on what my arguments will be when we talk politics.

At work, those of us who know about Benghazi are making it a point to bring it up around the coffee pots. Libs do opposition research just like we do. They know.

Without Fox News, the internet and talk radio are abuzz about Libya. They know.

And with some, it will be the last straw. Benghazi is a visceral issue, it is an emotional issue, and let’s not forget that it was a gay man who was left to die.

They know. And it will matter.

Wrong question. It impacted a lot of people. 4 dead. The media is deliberately and intentionally, with full knowledge and awareness hiding the story.

If a direct order was given to a member of the uniformed military, but NOT followed, wouldn’t that member be in serious trouble under UCMJ? Wouldn’t a court martial be the expected result of noncompliance? Wouldn’t charges be expected soon after the noncompliance was discovered? Has anyone be charged? Why not?!

It would if anyone knew about it, but Romney wouldn’t even bring it up in the last debate.
